Re: Bicycle Pedals "2011 Forte" Recalled by Performance Inc. ...

I am almost sure I saw this in person happening as a rider on one of our rides in CT (TOSREC 2011) had a close call and came off the road edge -- diagnosis: snapped pedal!! I am not 100% positive if it was this "Forte 2011" in particular she used, but I am sure it was this style of pedal.
